1: Álfrún ketta - Resub Request for Name Reconsideration Change

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in September of 2012, via Æthelmearc.

Ælfric Hudelesdun

Old Item: Ælfric Huddleston, to be released.

On the 01-2023 LoAR http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2023/01/23-01lar.html, submitter successfully registered Ælfric Huddleston with the following comment:

"The submitter requested authenticity for "14th c English". This request was not noted on the Letter of Intent. Kingdoms are reminded that all authenticity requests must be summarized on the Letter of Intent to ensure a name does not need to be pended for further research. Fortunately, Lillia Crampette was able to identify this request in commentary with enough time for commenters to respond.

This name does not meet that request. The given name Ælfric can only be dated as late as the 13th century; the spelling Aelfric is also attested for this time period. Additionally, this spelling of the byname Huddleston could only be dated to the 16th century. The submitter might be interested to know that the name Elfrik de Hodilston would be an authentic name for 14th century England. Alternatively, the spellings Ælfric de Hudelesdun and Aelfric de Hudelesdun are authentic for the 13th century. If the submitter is interested in any of these spellings, where the preposition de is optional, they may make a request for reconsideration.

We thank Lillia Crampette for her research on this item."

Submitter requested reconsideration and would like to register Ælfric Hudelesdun with out the preposition.

3: Gwyn Pennant Melangell - New Name (KLoI) (NP)

Language/Culture (Middle Welsh) most important.
Meaning (related to bees, rabbits/hares, and/or beekeepers) most important.

Herald of record: Erric de Vosges

Gwyn a given name found in A Simple Guide to Constructing 13th Century Welsh Names by Tangwystyl verch Morgant Glasvryn https://heraldry.sca.org/names/welsh13.html#...

Pennant Melangell A Welsh place name. Pennant c.1160, 1254, 1377, c.1679, Penant Mellagel c.1291, Pennant' Monachorum 1293, Pennant Malankith 1482, Penant, Pennaunt 1535, Pennant Melanghelth 1559, penant mallangell c.1566, Pennant, Pennant Mylanghell 16g. ddiw., Pennant Melangell c.1640, Pennant Moel Angell 1784

As Pennant [Twymyn] with pers. name of St Melangell - recorded as a daughter of Cyfwlch in `Bonedd y Saint', a 12th C compillation of pedigrees , and also in the poetry of Guto'r Glyn (1445-75) and Lewys Glyn Cothi (c.1420-89); the latinised form Monacella probably accounts for the error Monachorum, 'of the monks' 1293. A shrine of St Monacella (Melangell' in Welsh).

Thomas Pennant (the Welsh antiquarian), mentions a shrine of St Monacella and relates that she was a daughter of an Irish monarch, that she vowed celibacy and fled to this locality to avoid marriage. Brochwel Ysgithrog, king of Powys, came across her when hunting and Melangel protected a hare from his hunting dogs. when writing of St Monacella (or `Melangell' in Welsh), says that she was of Irish descent, and had taken a vow of clebacy and fled from the area to avoid getting marries. The king of Powys, Brochwel Ysgithrog, happened upon her whilst hunting, and Melangell protected a hare from his hunting dogs. Out of respect for this deed, Brochwel gave her land for a sanctuary where she is reputedly buried. A fragment of the legend survives in a 16th century manuscript. Whatever the truth of the story, Pennant Melangell was certainly a place of pilgrimage in 1526. https://www.peoplescollection.wales/items/466811#...
